Giveaway open to Canadians.
I’ve been receiving a lot of pitches for baby products lately, and while I am (ten years) out of that phase myself, I thought it would be fun to do a little bit of research into what the hottest baby products are these days. I did a call-out to social media followers who gave me tons of great ideas, and not only am I sharing them with you today, but I also reached out to the companies and am excited to say that ALL of these items are included in a huge giveaway! Yes, one lucky winner will receive all of these products, worth more than $600!
Whether you’re a mom, mom-to-be, or just want to be stocked with baby shower gifts for the next few years, you’re going to want to read on! Click on product names for more information or to purchase.
Chapters Indigo Baby Items
Sure, you go there for books, but did you know they’re a great resource for must-have baby gear too?
Swaddle Blanket (Petit Pehr x IndigoBaby)
Almost every mom who replied to me mentioned swaddle blankets, and this cotton-muslin version (priced at $19.50) is soft and stylish.
Petite Boutique Baby’s First Milestone Mat
New moms love capturing memories to share with friends and family (on social media, of course) and this soft and cute fold-out mat ($15.00) is definitely photo-worthy. Included are three thick card frames to indicate what milestone baby is celebrating (the number of days, weeks or months).
Petite Boutique Watch Me Grow Height Chart
Sure, you could go old-school and mark growth on a door frame, but this is a beautifully-illustrated alternative. This sturdy board chart ($6.00) can also be folded away in the shape of a book.
Matchstick Monkey Dancing Monkey Teether
This fun and flexible teething toy ($29.95) is only available at Indigo! It’s a soft, safe teether with a variety of textures to help soothe your baby’s teething pain. It also has an ergonomic design for babies to hold easily. It’s dishwasher and cold water steriliser safe and available in a variety of colours.
Now moving on to some other great companies…
I will never claim to be the most environmentally-friendly mama out there, but I’ve written before about how much I love my Norwex window cloth (you just use it with water – I’ve never found window cleaning easier) and mopping system (dry and wet; I use it on hardwood and vinyl). While those items aren’t part of this giveaway (maybe next time!) Norwex also has a pile of great products perfect for parents of little ones, and Consultant Lara Murray has generously offered this bundle to my winner:
Baby Hooded Towel Set ($42.99)
Bottle Brush with EnviroSleeve ($19.99)
Baby Body Pack ($16.49; includes three face/body cloths that are extra-gentle on skin)
Stain Remover ($11.99; we all know the messes babies can make on fabric!)
Travel Pack of EnviroCloths ($21.99; the antibacterial EnviroCloth dusts and cleans surfaces, including up to 99% of bacteria, with only water, no chemicals We use these in our classroom!)
Reusable Wet Wipes Bag ($19.99)
Odour Eliminator ($18.99, an enzyme-based deodorant perfect for any smelly areas of the home…diaper pail, perhaps? It eliminates the source of the odors rather than masking them, leaving a clean, fresh smell.)
If you’re interested in any Norwex products, I’m running a party here through Lara Murray (choose This Mom Loves Baby Contest). Orders can be shipped anywhere in Canada, and if you spend $95 this month you can order the car cloth (graphite) for just $10, plus there are Laundry Makeover, Mighty Microfiber Makeover and Soft Skin Makeover specials!

Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches
The Harmony Patches creator, Dr. May Loo, came up with the idea when her newborn daughter would not stop crying due to probable gas. She applied a mixture of ground herbs using a bandage and her baby instantly calmed down and went to sleep. After years of research and development, she has brought her idea full circle and is now offering Harmony Patches to consumers everywhere. Try the infant patches ($24.95) for colic or for cough. (The winner gets both!)
